Pours a clear, dark brown color. 1/5 inch head of a white color. Good retention and good lacing. Smells of sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, hint of hop, hint of yeast, and slight caramel malt. Fits the style of an American Amber / Red Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of sweet malt, hint of roasted malt, hint of hop, hint of yeast, and caramel malt. Overall, decent appearance, but unimpressive aroma, body, and blend.

Not a bad little red... Brown with hints of red mixed in, less than a fingers worth of head that settles to a small ring with no lacing to speak of. Very much on the malt side with hints of caramel and a very light earthy hops. Mid bodied with a light clean finish. If you are looking for a malty red this one is worth giving a try.
